Silverlight in SharePoint

Posted on 3/3/2008 @ 12:09 AM in #SharePoint by | Feedback | 5029 views

SharePoint is all about functionality.

Silverlight, is a tonne about glitz and accessibility.

Put the two together, and you have a real tasty dish.

Presenting, Silverlight Blueprint for SharePoint.

It includes,

  • A simple “hello, world” sample showing Silverlight in a Web part.
  • A Silverlight slider control as a SharePoint custom field type.
  • A navigation control.
  • A Colleague Viewer that uses lookups in Active Directory by using Windows Communication Foundation.
  • A Silverlight picture viewer from a SharePoint picture library.
  • A visual how-to center, created in Silverlight and based on a SharePoint list, for viewing videos.

Now THATS hot!

Sound off but keep it civil:

I feel ripped off. I was at Scott Guthrie's Blog looking at all the 2.0 demos, then I download the how to for the web parts. I was sad when I realized that 2.0 Beta 1 is not public yet. I want to play with 2.0 and SharePoint, not 1.0.
